Documenting the Hurricane News Coverage with a Canon EOS 7D

by planetMitch3 Comments

Jon Roemer tipped me to this amazing documentary just released about the first 36 hours of news coverage by one team from PIX11 about Hurricane Sandy that was shot on a Canon EOS 7D.

The documentary was shot “on a Canon 7D… that was it. No audio plugged into camera or anything. The lens was also a 24-105 L series” according to Jeff Pinilla who shot, edited and directed the piece.

It is quite gripping and I'm sure you'll sit thru all 22 minutes as enthralled as I was.

This documentary was shot, edited, and directed by Jeff Pinilla.

This is the story of what a local news team has to go through to get their story on the air. In this case, the story is Hurricane Sandy, the biggest storm to hit the east coast in recorded history.

Special thanks to Arthur Chi'en, Kenton Young, James Seelinger, and the news team at PIX11.
Special thanks to Tribune Creative Group for allowing me to have the necessary tools to tell this story.
